Years and years and years ago, Walt Disney provided the voice for Mickey Mouse. It was the only time the entertainment empire builder did that. For whatever reason, Get a Horse was never released, lost it seemed, forever. A few months ago, the short was found in the Disney vaults, and next week, the movie will finally have its debut.
Making its world debut Tuesday, June 11, 2013, at the Annecy Animation Festival in Annecy, France, is Walt Disney Animation Studios’ never-before-seen short “Get A Horse!” Starring the one and only Mickey Mouse and featuring Walt Disney himself as the voice of the iconic character, this black-and-white, hand-drawn short follows Mickey, his favorite gal pal Minnie Mouse and their friends Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow as they delight in a musical wagon ride—until Peg-Leg Pete shows up and tries to run them off the road.
I don’t know if Disney will include this in a future DVD release, but I do want to check it out, for nothing more than historical curiosity.
